Former Air Force Falcon wide receiver Chad Hall is headed to the Super Bowl with the 49ers.
Hall, a 2008 Air Force Academy graduate, is part of the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers.
Air Force Athletics announced that Hall was signed to the practice squad during the season by San Francisco and was moved to the active roster for last weekend’s NFC Championship game.
Hall, who spent the last two seasons with the Eagles, wears No. 14 for the 49ers.
In 2010, Hall was the first service academy grad to make the Eagles’ active team roster for that season. Hall had been on the Eagles practice squad since getting cut by the Eagles at the end of the preseason. An injury to backup wideout Riley Cooper left Philly with only three healthy players at the position, necessitating the signing of Hall.
